Wireless Networks Are Easy to Setup
In 1997, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) created the first wireless LAN standard - 802.11. Because it could only support a maximum bandwidth of 2Mbps, 802.11 wireless products are no longer being manufactured. The next wireless version was 802.11b, which supports bandwidths of up to 11Mbps, followed by the creation of 802.11g, which supports bandwidth up to 54Mbps. Here is a brief summary of the two wireless standards used in home networks today.
Always-On Networks Created with a Wireless Router
If you're using a wireless network with Windows' built-in Internet Connection Sharing, you're probably quite happy with it -- but there's a problem. The problem is this: the computer the modem is connected to needs to be turned on before any of the other computers can get Internet access! It's alright for a while, but it gets annoying really fast. I had one of these annoying setups at home for years and the moment I upgraded to using a router was like a breath of fresh air. Now my son does not complain every time I need to reboot or do extensive maintenance periods. His machine could not care less weather my machine is active or not.
Get Connected To Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, short for wireless fidelity refers to a set of wireless networking technologies more specifically referred to as any type of 802.11 network, 802.11b and 802.11a, dual band. The word Wi-Fi was built by an organization called the Wi-Fi Alliance. They overlook tests that confirm the production.
Why You Should Try Broadband
Today's internet is a great place to find useful information but most people are on dial up. If you are in an area that offers broadband, you should make the switch soon. One of the first differences you will notice is that you no longer need to dial in to get on the internet. The moment you turn on the computer, you are online. In fact, you are always online and that's a big time saver. The next change you will notice is how fast web pages load, about 1 to 5 seconds. It takes 10 to 20 seconds to load an entire page on dial up.
Wireless Lan And Laptop Computers
A small business run from home or on rented space, while it can be extremely profitable, cannot be furnished in the same style as a large-scale company office. Using standard full-size desktop computers in such a set up is impracticable, as it takes up too much space and is too bulky for cramped confines. To deal with such a situation, desknotes or transportables may just hold the key.
Towing on the Net
The Internet has grown significantly in the last several years. Almost all businesses today use email for everyday correspondence. It is being used in the towing industry by motorclubs and towers alike. The motorclubs dispatch calls and accept claims over the Internet. Many towers are using it to send pages to drivers, to track their truck locations, and in some cases they have even virtually eliminated the radio by using two-way pages or Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs). The next generation of towing software promises an even greater integration with the Internet.
Creating a Wireless Desktop
We live in an age of technology and as such we are always looking for ways to make life easier or ways to make things look better. In the home or office (or even the home office) making things look better involves getting rid of clutter. This is where the wireless desktop comes into play. No wires means less clutter and because when using Bluetooth wireless devices line of sight is not needed, you can use your desk space to its optimum with no worries.
